After two years of existence, this blog has today reached 200,000 unique visitors.
I'm sure many of those visitors got lost on the internet and reached this site by accident (possibly looking for "free" jazz in the sense of not having to pay for it). Nevertheless, I hope they got interesting insights and kept returning. And that is the real benchmark.
We have now reached a still increasing average of 5,000 unique returning visitors per month. By internet standards, that's peanuts of course, but for this kind of music, that's not bad I think. Many reviews of this blog have also found their way to musicians blogs and sites (Joe Fonda, Michael Dessen, Dave Douglas, Chris Kelsey, Denman Maroney, ...), may it help them to widen their audiences.
My mission remains to promote great music, to share information on new records that are released, in the hope that the musicians get better and wider recognition, and in the hope that you, listeners, will have a broader selection to choose from.
A great thanks also to all the labels and musicians who keep sending me their material.
